PURPOSE: Cardiac stiffness is a marker of diastolic function with a strong prognostic significance in many heart diseases that is not measurable in clinical practice. This study investigates whether elastometry, a surrogate for organ stiffness, is measurable in the heart using ShearWave Imaging. METHODS: In 33 anesthetized patients scheduled for cardiac surgery, ShearWave imaging was acquired epicardially using a dedicated ultrasound machine on the left ventricle parallel to the left anterior de...

A 54-year-old male was found to have neuroendocrine carcinoma with hepatic metastasis. Two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) demonstrated dilated right ventricle and right atrium, and severe tricuspid and pulmonary regurgitation. Three-dimensional (3D) TTE en-face views showed thickened, retracted, and fixed tricuspid valve and pulmonic valve which remained widely open throughout the cardiac cycle. 3D TTE, particularly en-face views, demonstrates incremental value over 2D TTE...
BACKGROUND: Hyperparathyroidism (PHP) is the most common cause of hypercalcemia in outpatients. It is characterized by many cardiac complications including chronic cardiac arrhythmia, hypertrophy, and diastolic insufficiency. However, there are insufficient data about the cardiac systolic function in PHP. Data regarding the positive effects of surgical treatment on cardiac complications are limited and inadequate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the postoperative changes in the left ventri...

Right atrial appendage aneurysms (RAAAs) are rare heart malformations, presenting as isolated anomalies or co-existing with other structural heart diseases. We describe a rare case of RAAA complicated with an atrial septal defect (ASD). The diagnosis was established using transthoracic echocardiography and confirmed using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. To treat the ASD and reduced right atrium volume load, ASD transcatheter closure was performed. On echocardiography performed 3 months post ...

BACKGROUND: Right ventricular (RV) systolic parameters are difficult to assess in heart transplant recipients (HTRs) compared to healthy people because of discordant data, and their impact on exercise capacity remains undefined. We sought to retrospectively assess the impact of RV systolic function on exercise capacity after heart transplantation. METHODS: We analyzed data from 61 HTRs who underwent transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), and exercise capa...

Evaluating the hemodynamic performance of aortic valve prostheses has relied primarily on echocardiography. This involves calculating the trans-prosthetic valve mean gradient (MG) and aortic valve area (AVA), and assessing for valvular and paravalvular regurgitation in a fashion similar to the native aortic valve. In conjunction with other echocardiographic and nonechocardiographic parameters, MG and AVA are used to distinguish between prosthesis stenosis, prosthesis patient mismatch, pressure r...
